Ok we all know a standard 7/32 socket won't fit the TFI module on our TC's. Autozone now has an extended 5.5mm socket the fits into the Ford TFI with no modifications or grinding of the socket. It is a 1/4 " socket and cost about $3 bucks and makes a quick go of it with the small quarter inch wrench.

Lisle make a tool just for that. you can do it by hand or it has provisions for a wrench it the bolts are that tight or you can't get you hand down there to turn it. I think it was $5. Also on a side note some of the older ones have Torx bolts from the factory.

I took one apart once with a Snap On 1/4" Drive 7/32" deepwell socket and it fit just fine. I'm not sure what the part number of it is, because it wasn't my socket, but it worked.

Thats because Snap-On & Mac tools use harder steel & have thinner walls, whereas Craftsman & other cheaper sockets are thicker ---- Which means you need to grind them down. This is no ding against them, as I only have Craftsmen tools.

The Autozone tool also works on the screws that hold the PIP in place.
